Under new management, it is good value for money and we have confidence in taking friends there. They serve excellent light lunches and suppers.

A little known bouldering centre in the arches. Turn up with your kit for a different kind of work out.

San Marino

Been serving amazing breakfast and lunch in the heart of Brixton since 1993. The chicken salad is a winner judging by the queues outside the door!

Craft Beer Co.

Over 100 types of beers and an enormous variety of flavours to choose from. The perfect setting for after-work drinks.

Brixton's very own 'star man' still attracts fans from around the world... Nothing 'ch-ch-ch-changes...'

The best breakfast I have had in Brixton and an amazing array of coffees and real fruit smoothies.

The smoothest coffee this side of Rome!

Seven at Brixton

Seven at Brixton

Unique homemade cocktails in the middle of Brixton Market, made using their own secret recipes. A small place, but very nice for a date. They also sell food.

The Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales

A Brixton institution, this bar has amazing roof terraces and serves food in the day too. You can dance the night away until the early hours when they have DJs playing.

Hot Power Yoga

Hot Power Yoga

Hot Power Yoga has 2 sites they practice in, either in Lambeth College or at The Balance Studio on Gauden Road. The teachers are lovely and the times vary from 6:30am to 9pm so very flexible.

The Ritzy

The Ritzy

One of the most iconic buildings in Brixton overlooking Windrush Square, the Ritzy is a really cool independent cinema where you can grab a couple of cocktails whilst watching the latest blockbuster!

Why not explore the nearby areas of Vauxhall, Clapham North, Camberwell, Brixton, Kennington, Nine Elms, Clapham, Pimlico, Walworth and Herne Hill

"Jutting out from the Underground entrance at Vauxhall Cross are two large metal 'forks' that are covered in solar panels. The energy they supply provides 60% of the station's lighting."

The Oval is a great day out and at only £24 a head, the Twenty20 cricket matches are a bargain!

David Law

Home to arguably the most vibrant food scene in London...plenty to offer for those on a budget too!

Chris Campbell

Electric Avenue is home to Brixton's market traders six days a week, Monday to Saturday.

What locals say about Stockwell

  1. The Brixton Market and the Stockwell Pry school

  2. It's very close and well-connected to central London while it is not overcrowded and chaotic. You can be in Brixton with a short walk and taste different dishes from all around the world or just enjoy strolling around Brixton Village. There are some parks nearby as well, like Kennington or Clapham Common. I love living in Stockwell.

  3. I love how friendly the neighbours are and a lovely sense of community.
